Excerpt from the classic storybook, "The Velveteen Rabbit" by Margery Williams.

Now, here I sit almost a quarter of a century later. I’ve had eye surgery due to a detached retina, my hair has lost some of its fullness, my muscles are a little weaker and my body, overall, is a little shabbier. On the plus side, my heart is a lot softer…a lot fuller.

Hard to believe that I used to think this story was about a stuffed animal.
